Fancy making some home-made hot chilli sauce from scratch? If yes, look no further because this week, I’m sharing my tried and tested recipe with you.
It’s fuss-free and easy to make. All you need is lots and lots of dried chillies and let it simmer in a pot for a couple of hours. It’s always tricky with dried chillies as it is hard to gauge their spiciness. Usually, the only way I gauge if my sauce is going to turn out to be VERY spicy is when my throat gets irritated the moment I start cutting the chillies and soak them in hot water. Then I know I’ll have a mean batch to deal with.
To counter the spiciness, use both lemon juice and sugar. That’s all you need really. From then on, you’ll have to adjust and play it by ear; in this case, tongue and add in more water while simmering it under low fire.
